This was our last overnight on a road trip to Myrtle Beach and back. We'd stayed at another hotel in Marion on the trip down (Hampton Inn) and selected the Comfort Suites on the trip home. It was a better choice. For $10 less than the HI, we had a room with a separate sitting area and a bathtub with a whirlpool. We also had a microwave and a small refrigerator. The Wi-Fi was the fastest free service I'd ever used- frequently free "high-speed" internet is worse than dial-up. There's also a business center with computers.
I used the pool and it was a decent size; I noticed the next morning that the window faces the breakfast room so if you prefer a morning swim you'll have an audience! Breakfast (included in room rate) was the usual cold selections plus a heated dish of muffins and sausages.
There are few dinner options within walking distance (a steak restaurant, the convenience store of a gas station and Cracker Barrel) but the front desk clerk gave me a map to Fazoli's, which was less than 2 miles away. There are plenty of places if you're willing to get back in your car.
We're likely to make this trip again and I'd definitely choose the Comfort Suites over other options.
